OUR STORED UP POWER.
Mr. Star bo It Coeslders Man aa Built Upon
a Compartment Plan.
"Man is, as one might say," said Mr,
Stay bolt, "built in series of compart
ments, though he may not know this
fact at the outset, and he may indeed!
go through life and die without know
ing it, taking with him unused storks
of ability and strength that he had
never known he possessed, simply be
cause they were never brought into
play. As to what will bring their qual
ities into play men differ. In ere are
some few men who command them
selves, and some who open at a touch,
and then there are many who respond
only to the most urgent calL But there
are few men who cannot ia eomo way

"This brings me, for illustration, to
a brief consideration of the personal
quality commonly denominated as sand.
of which, I imagine, most of us possess
far more than we suspect, for there aro
few men who finally run away mighty
few who will not stand up and fight
when they feel that they aro really call
ed upon. But our sand is iu compart
ments, and most of ns, I fancy, open
only one and make that last through
life, and we die without knowing how
bravo we are unless some great occa
sion, indcpcnaent or ourselves, opens
another compartment nnd shows us
whet wo really have in reserve. I might
add that thero aro few if any revela

"The moral of all this is that in our
good qualities we should trust ourselves
without hesitation. There are qualities,
which will easily suggest themselves.
which it would be better to leave un
used, better for ourselves and for every
body else if the comportments contain
ing them were never opened, but as to
such qualities as pluck, endurance, en
ergy, capacity and moral strength wo
should call upon ourselves freely. We
should not tal:e down with us, as other

of these valuable qualities untouched.

A SELFISH SHAH.
The High Prices of Persian
The shah of Persia may be only in
the 8 :30 class in matters of diplomacy
and he does not dare exactly to slap
Queen ictona or Kaiser Wilhelm on
the back when the potentates chance to
meet, but, so far as matters in Persia
are concerned, when the shah makes i
law it is generally enforced to the letter.
A case in point may be cited in the
matter of Persian lambskin. Persian
lambskins are and have long been an
article of staple demand in the com
mercial world. They have commanded
such good prices that the supply was
hardly equal to the demand. Conse
quently, when the shah one day ordered
spring lamb with mint Bauoe, the cook
was obliged to confess that the dish was
beyoud the command of the Persian
treasury. Or course the cook was
promptly beheaded, but the shah could
not find another cook who would agre
to f urnitli spring. Iamb whenever his
majesty desired to indulge ia tbisTltli
cacy. This naturally irritated the shah.
After consulting with three or four of
his most trusted advisers, who could sec
no way out of - the difficulty and who
consequently disappeared from - their
borate and society in a mysterious man
nex, the shah finally decided that the
comxatTce of Persia was threatened by
the extinction cf Persian sheep and Per
sian lambs. - Consequently he made a
decree that any person found with lamb
akins in his possession for purposes of
trade cr commerce would be fined heav
ily. Since then the export trade in Per
sian lamb&kins has stopped with a
blunt and nauseating Jar. Boston Advertiser.
Much interest is manifested in
Walker Whiteside's forthcoming en-
gagement at the Wagner opera house,
Moline, tomorrow night, upon which
occasion he will produce his new plav,
The Red Cockade." The play itself,
outside tbe star and bis company,
should excite no small amount of in
terest, as it is the only .English trans
lation of M. Foinard's srreat French
drama, "Lion Amoureaux." Mr.
Whiteside owns the sole riht of the
play in this country and England.

out of the stomach into theduodenum
or second stomach and there treated
by the pancreatic juices, when in time
a microscopic iungi is grown irom a

With all its superiority in distances
the heliograph is too uncertain for sole
reliance. A passing cloud is sufficient
to interrupt the clearest signals, per
haps in the critical moment of a battle,
or a sun haze may render invisible tbe
rays from the largest mirror, so that at
any time without a clear atmosphere
tho system is useless.
It is not known that the heliographio
system has ever been in use on ship
board, and tho sea service has nothing
for daylight signaling that approaches
its accomplishment in dry atmospheres.
For night service at sea tbe flashlight
appears to be the best system of signal
ing in all weathers, though on rare oc
casions the long beam of tbe electric
searchlight thrown up on the sky has
proved effective for communication
when it was possible by no other means.
An instance of such use was reported a
few years ago by two British ships,
which while cn opposite sides of a high
promontory nine miles in width opened
communication with each otner by
means of dot and dash flashes ou ' the
sky from their searchlights. Lippin-oott's.
Gladstone'e Doings and Undoings.
Mr. Gladstone began as the defender
of tbe Irish church ; he ended by de
molishiug it. No one ever opposed more
vehemently the extension of British in
nuence in Egypt, but it was under bis
government we bombarded the Alexan
drian forts, fought tbe battle of Tel -el -Kebir
and reduced Egypt to tbe condi
tion of a British satrapy. He was tbe
most conspicuous advocate of peace
with Russia when Lord Beaconsfield
was in office, until Constantinople was
in danger. Five years later he left
office, after having brought us to tho
very verge of war with Russia for the
sake of Penjdeh. One year he clapped
Mr. Parnell into prison, the next he
proposed to make over to him tbe gov
ernment of Ireland, and then agaiu ho
deposed him from tbe leadership. Yet
he was always consistent and anxious
for bis consistency. Circumstances alter
cases, and Mr. Gladstone was not above
